Introduction

American Views is a symposium organized by the Department of Art & Archaeology and co-sponsored by the Princeton University Art Museum and the Program in American Studies at Princeton.

American Views honors Professor John Wilmerding, Christopher B. Sarofim '86 Professor of American Art, whose 19 years of teaching at Princeton University, leadership at numerous arts institutions, including the National Gallery of Art, and groundbreaking scholarship constitute an unparalleled contribution to the field of American art history. The lectures presented at the symposium will evoke many of the topics and themes of Professor Wilmerding’s research and writing, from landscape painting to the art and culture of the 1960s, and will highlight the depth and breadth of his scholarly work as well its lasting significance. Professor Wilmerding has inspired generations of students and scholars of American art and culture and his legacy at Princeton is one of dedicated teaching, collegiality and good humor, and intellectual curiosity and rigor.
